how I fix error 0xc0000142 (app. unable to start)
Does it state what app is unable to start?
Have you tried a reboot and open the app again?
ive tried rebooting no luck. trying to start a game I have played on this comp[ before
(0xc0000142) is caused due to the malfunctioning or the corruption of the program you are trying to use.
Few things that can be tried.
Uninstall the game and re-install
Run System File Checker
Preform a Clean Boot
non of that worked, the system file checker just shut down when it finished and didn't tell me anything ran it again same thing
I have put together a tutorial that explains not only how to run SFC, but also how to find the report that it produces.
How to run SFC and find the CBS.Log
The info on finding and reading the report is in the second half of the tutorial.
See if this helps to show any problems.
I ran the sfc and got "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."
How old is they system @vett and when was the last time you ran a check disk on the hard drive?
I have given up and removed the game. Thanks for trying
Not a problem you may still want to run the check to make sure there are no issues with the Hard Drive.
